During a July 24 panel discussion, two top experts on China’s politics and economy argued for continuing U.S.-China economic cooperation, including in energy. Nevertheless, they noted that tensions in the U.S.-China economic relationship are growing—and that American businesses are increasingly frustrated with some Chinese practices, such as intellectual property theft. Myron Brilliant, Senior Vice President for International Affairs at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Douglas Paal, Vice President for Studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and a former top National Security Council official for Asian affairs, also urged greater cooperation in the energy sector. The meeting was the second in a series on energy and energy innovation organized in cooperation with the Clean Air Task Force. Center Executive Director Paul Saunders moderated the discussion.
